FORT WORTH, Texas — Former TCU and Seattle Seahawks quarterback Trevone Boykin was sentenced to three years in prison after pleading guilty Wednesday to charges from the 2018 beating of his girlfriend.

Boykin and prosecutors agreed to the sentence in return for his guilty plea Wednesday to aggravated assault and witness tampering charges. Boykin’s attorney said his client will be eligible for parole in less than a year.

Boykin had been in the Tarrant County Jail in Fort Worth since December after he ducked paying for a hotel room in nearby Arlington.

Shabrika Bailey alleged that Boykin broke her jaw in two places in the March 2018 beating. The Seahawks cut Boykin in the wake of the allegation.

Boykin, a West Mesquite High School graduate who played for the TCU Horned Frogs in 2012-15, was the 2014 Big 12 Conference Offensive Player of the Year and set team career records in career passing yards (10,728), passing attempts (1,356), pass completions (830) and touchdown passes (86). He also set single-season team records in 2014 for passing yards (3,901), touchdown passes (33), touchdowns responsible for (42) and total offense (4,608), and set a single-game team record with seven touchdown passes in a 2014 game that TCU won over Texas Tech, 82-27.

With the Seahawks, Boykin played in five games in 2016, completing 13 of 18 passes for 145 yards and one touchdown and one interception. He spent 2017 on the Seahawks practice squad.

He had been in trouble with the law since 2015, however, when he had a barroom brawl in San Antonio two days before the Frogs were to meet the Oregon Ducks in the 2016 Alamo Bowl. He was suspended for the game, then pleaded no contest to a resisting-arrest count and got a year’s deferred adjudication probation. in June 2016.
